Hox gene - These genes determine how a particular section of a developing embryo will develop.  The amazing fact is the high degree of homology between these genes between different organisms.  In fact, one can replace the gene for wing development from a fruit fly with the same gene from a chicken and the fly develops normally!  It doesn't grow chicken wings!
